Chicago White Sox defeat LA Angels 1-0. There were no delays in the White Sox four-game sweep over the Angels. Ervin Santana (8-7) pitched a spectacular game against the Sox save for the first inning where he hit lead-off hitter Juan Pierre with a pitch. After Alex Rio’s double sent Pierre to third, Paul Konerko hit a sacrifice fly to score Pierre. Santana blanked the South-Siders the rest of the afternoon giving up only two more hits and three walks for the rest of the game. But Sox starter John Danks (8-7) did him one-better pitching a complete game shutout. In fact he had a no-hitter going into the seventh inning went Reggie Willits punched a single to left field to lead off the inning. Howie Kendrick lined a single to center, but that was it. Danks completely shut them down to get the sweep.
